The Role:

This is a challenging yet extremely rewarding role were you will be working closely with a caseload of young offenders who are on remand or sentenced. You will be responsible for establishing positive individualised relationships that encourage the young people to take advice and ownership of their rehabilitation plan.

This position is based on a rotational shift work pattern where you will be working both day and night shifts as well as including working every other weekend.

You will also require an Enhanced DBS for this position.


In order to be considered for this role you must have either previous experience working with vulnerable, challenging young people or experience working with individuals with mental health problems. You will be someone who can effectively analyse and evaluate evidence to objectively assess cases whilst complying with regulatory requirements in all practice. Communication skills are essential to this role, as you will be collaborating with colleagues, partners and external agencies in order to create effective rehabilitation programmes for the young offenders.
